Sustainable fashion & lifestyle with a vintage sensibility.

Hello and Welcome! I’m Nicole and I’m so glad you’ve stopped in. So, what is “The Artyologist”? Well, it’s a play on words, (archaeologist) which pretty much sums up both my love for enjoying and creating art, and my love for eras past.

I have always loved fashion and I like to mix my interest in historical and vintage fashions with new styles. I love history, and more specifically the history of fashion; finding out where our clothing evolved from and also how to incorporate historical touches into outfits today. I also believe that ethical and responsible fashion is the only option, so I mainly shop second hand, create my own garments, or buy ethically produced items whenever I can.

I also like to create things, whether it’s through photography, watercolour or other creative pursuits.

I also love decorating and homemaking, and I like to craft and sew. I’m always dabbling in some sort of creative endeavour. I like hosting parties and using fancy tea cups, I love to read, and I live for tea. (The kettle’s always on!) I have always been interested in sustainable living (thanks mom!) and in the past few years have evolved to live as much of a zero-waste lifestyle as I can. This blog is my creative outlet, where I share my findings, creations and what I’m learning, in hopes that you might be able to learn something too!


I live in Alberta, Canada, am saved by the grace of Christ, who loved me first, and I’m glad for the chance to share this blog with all of you.

If you would like to get in contact with me, you can either leave me a comment, as I read and appreciate each and every one, or feel free to send me an email.

And, if you are interested in collaborating, or interviewing or talking to me about ethical and sustainable fashion, vintage style, refashioning and sewing, or artwork, I’d love to hear from you!
